Republican GOP Congressman loves Gangsta Rap Group Public Enemy
Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL) told NowThisNews on Wednesday that he loves “so-called gangsta rap,” and especially hip-hop group Public Enemy, because he feels the song “Fight the Power” somehow mirrors his own struggles in Washington, D.C. and the scandals of the Obama administration.
“This is a song that came out really, if you really get down to it, in many reflects the conservative message of having a heavy-handed federal government, of a party where…” he said, trailing off. “Chuck D and I may disagree on certain philosophies of government — but I think at the end of the day, and this is where I take my love of hip-hop music, of where you can see there have been issues with heavy-handed law enforcement, like the Department of Justice like we see now with the AP, or heavy-handed government in and of itself.”
I’ve always said that gangsta rap really embodies the core values Republicans adore: free market, free speech, anti-government, low taxes, get money, get mine, live lavish, own guns, defend at any cost and prey on anybody who gets caught slippin. Be da Boss! And don’t even get me started about the fancy cars and jewelry!
